Modernization of the line Votice – Benešov u Prahy: Work progress (January 2012)
PRAGUE, 4th January 2012 – In the past period, work focused on the dismantling of the aban-doned line between Votice and Olbramovice and on a reconstructed even set of tracks in Olbramovice, including the dismantling of the current bridge structures – the abandoned railway bridge over Road I/18 and the completely rebuilt extended railway bridge over Road III/11447 from Olbramovice to Božkovice.
Given the climatic conditions, it is not possible to fully develop all the working processes; the main work mainly proceeds in the tunnels: the Zahradnický, Tomický and Tomický II; also the earthwork during the reconstruction of the even set of tracks in the railway station Olbramovice, with the antici-pated completion not later than 14/5/2012. The work also proceeds on the construction of an under-pass, a railway culvert and an adapted bridge structure in Olbramovice and it needs to be finalized prior to the construction of the railway superstructure.
Work still proceeds with three pierced tunnels (of the five built tunnels within the scope of the construction) – the Zahradnický and Tomický and Tomický II.
Construction workers also continue their work on bridge structures. The bridge structure in the track section Tomice – Bystřice, which will serve as an access road for rescue and medical assistance, is being finalized.
In the next period in addition to other tasks, the work will proceed on the possession of the even set of tracks in the railway station Olbramovice, in particular focusing on bridge structures and the railway substructure as well as on the installation of a noise wall bordering the railway line and protecting resi-dents from the noise induced by the traffic on the adjoining line.
The construction work calls for necessary traffic closure and detours on neighbouring roads. The con-struction also affects traffic operations. The traffic is restricted in places where work proceeds on bridge structures or it is directed to bypass roads.
